Chief Constable Likely To Stand Down Next Year
Scotland's most senior police officer has indicated he's likely to leave when his contract's up next September.
Sir Stephen Houses's contract comes to an end in September 2016.
In an interview with the Herald newspaper, he said he was "unlikely" to apply for a second one.
He said: "September 2016 will get me to somewhere like 35 and a half years in policing, probably a fair innings.
"The idea of me applying for a second contract is unlikely."
Sir Stephen oversaw the merger of Scotland's eight regional police forces into a single national force, which is the second largest in the UK.
He was praised for the policing of last year's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, but he's come under fire for his decision to put armed officers on routine patrols, as well as the force's stop and search policy.
Earlier this week - at the Scottish Police Federation conference - Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie called for Sir Stephen to "change his ways" or go, prompting cheers of approval from rank-and-file officers.
